Occupational Therapist and Brain Injury Case Manager
I am an HCPC-registered Occupational Therapist. I qualified in 1985 and have worked as a brain injury case manager in private practice since 1998.
After qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 1985 I worked for the NHS in a variety of acute and rehabilitation hospitals as well as community-based services for adults with neurological problems and complex physical needs, specialising in community-based services for adults with neurological disorders. I went on to set up similar services for older people and adults with acquired brain injury. I held clinical leadership posts for the NHS in London and Bedfordshire and was responsible for country-wide assessments for CHC funding.
In 1998 I started brain injury case management in private practice, and from 2001 as an independent practitioner.
I now provide brain injury case management as well as undertaking medico legal reports. I am experienced in assisting clients to move from hospital to home, coordinating goal-orientated community-based rehabilitation programmes and in establishing and managing dedicated care teams. I seek to provide a bespoke service, taking account of what matters to the injured person and their family. I have worked with clients with a wide range of needs – complex physical disabilities, neurocognitive and neurobehavioural difficulties and including those with complex comorbidities.
